When protein deposits form over the lenses of your eyes, the result is a cloudiness and blurriness to your vision. The effects of this eye disease can be counteracted with eyeglasses or contact lenses at first, and with adjustments to your prescription, typically for a long time. But when corrective eyewear is no longer sufficient, though, you can count on us at Orange Coast Eye Center for refractive cataract surgery in Fountain Valley.
Is having a procedure the right approach for you at this time? Come in for an examination and consultation to find out. We offer standard cataract surgery and also an option to have it done with lasers. Performed with the assistance of lasers, the accuracy and precision of our refractive cataract surgery in Fountain Valley is unprecedented. It takes a method of treatment that was already simple, safe, and effective, and elevates your confidence in the outcome to an even higher level. Either way, the point is to remove your natural eye lenses and then replace them with prosthetic ones. There is no way to separate the protein deposits from the lens itself, so the entire lens must be taken out. Fortunately, the intraocular lens implants, or IOLs, that are used in their stead restore a degree of vision that you may have thought was no longer possible after suffering from cataracts. Monofocal IOLs restore your distance vision, but may require you to wear reading glasses for seeing up close. However, newer and more advanced multifocal IOLs restore your full range of vision.
When you take advantage of our refractive cataract surgery in Fountain Valley, the outcome is that you can experience independence once again. Go back to doing all of the things that you were unable to do because of cataracts, such as driving, reading, using your computer, and so much more. Get started by reaching out to our office right now and scheduling an appointment to come in.
